ZUMBROTA -- What with all her sheep, dairy goats and chickens, two dogs, rabbits and geese, a donkey and a clique of kittens, Nancy Ellison is not likely to get lonely. Plus she's got grandchildren just down the road. But those contacts aren't enough for her affable nature. Ellison also opens her sheep farm to visitors through the Country Heritage Adventures Farm Tours. "It just seems to be my calling to share the farm with people," Ellison said.

The freedom for which our veterans fight is represented by Old Glory herself flying freely in the breeze. That said, we respectfully part ways with U.S. Rep. John Kline and others in their recent votes in support of a constitutional amendment that would ban burning of the U.S. flag.
County Administrator David Hamilton will serve as interim administrator of Goodhue County Public Health as the agency transitions into new management.
